I've had sex about 6 times and evert time i've been bleeding afterwards.

I don't have any other symptoms and so m not sure why.
It's only light bleeding but it goes on for like a week. I thought if it was just my body adapting it would be fine by now but it isn't. Any ideas?

  • I've been having the same problem, except that a couple of days after it starts it gets heavy. It's also really really dark. And I haven't really had a normal period since this has started happening (about 2 months ago now). I've seen a healthcare practictioner and I've had a pap test to which I'm waiting results for. In the meantime, if anyone has any ideas, it would be appreciated. It's really frustrating!!!

  • Me too, have had this problem for about a year now. I have had an ultrasound and pap smears, and ultrasound found a fibroid, but I have had it for years with no problems. I start bleeding after sex, then bleed for a week, stops a couple of days, then my period starts,,,constant bleeding. My last episode of bleeding lasted 45 days, and after a 3 week break, I have been bleeding again for 4 weeks now. Such a pain in the **s. I have seen a specialist who recommended "ablation" where they burn off the lining of the uterus, but think I might just ask for a total hysterectomy to end this problem for good. I bleed so bad that I literaly have to sit on the toilet for a few hours, as I get "gushing" that soaks through everything. So embarrassing, and such a horrible way to live. I am afraid to go out, in case it happens in public. My doctor has never given me a reason for this happening, he says I an too young for menopause, so have no idea.So much fun being a woman!!!!!!!
